Is there a shortcut key that I could hit instead of editing my files to activate this?

Below is a screenshot of the Overload screen:

Use the Ctrl-Shift-Space keyboard shortcut. This is the same as Edit. If you’ve altered the default, use parameterInfo.

The Edit.ParameterInfo for the selected method is displayed by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Space; by selected method, I mean the caret must be within the method parentheses.

Only Visual Studio 2010 was used to test this.

Place your cursor inside the (, then press Ctrl+K, followed by P.

Using the / arrow keys, you can now navigate.

Solution #4

Ctrl+Shift+Space is the default keybinding for this. Edit.ParameterInfo is the underlying Visual Studio command.

If the default keybinding doesn’t work for you (which may be the case in some profiles), you can alter it on the keyboard preferences page.

It’s possible that none of the methods listed above will work. The key binding is correct, however the tool tip does not appear in any instance, whether as a completion aid or on demand.

To fix it just go to Tools\Text Editor\C# (or all languages) and check the ‘Parameter Information’. It should now work.
